There is something about silence. There is a conversational reflex, to fill the gaps of silence with something. Usually, it's not me who does that – it's my guest. My name is Kristoffer Triumf and I am a Swedish podcast host, writer and sometimes also a comedian. In VARVET INTL, I'll take on one guest a week for the rest of 2014. There will be musicians! Comedians! Authors! Chefs! Actors! And other interesting people in, and around, the global entertainment industry. In 2012, I started interviewing Swedish people in my podcast VÄRVET. Two and a half years later, I've recorded som 140 conversations – with Sweden's Prime Minister, rock stars, artists of all kinds, and so forth. Any day, these interviews have been downloaded 20,000,000 times and it keeps growing with a million a month. I am humble and grateful about that fact. And although I'll keep doing VÄRVET, it's time to take on new challenges. That is: VARVET INTL. I hope you want to follow me on my new journey with VARVET INTL. I hope you'll like it. Best, Kristoffer Triumf Vällingby, Sweden

I am a solid 3.4 student with a major in English from the University of Washington. I've also been asked what my SAT score was and it was 1060. It only took five years of dorm/rave life for me to accrue the life knowledge I have received. I’m a Sagittarius, which means I’m super creative and stubborn; but there are walls I need to break down because I always want to leap over the boundaries that make me climb ladders and roofs. I’m agreeable and delightful. I also have incredible leadership skills and following abilities. And, I have 20/20 vision so I’m an eagle eye. I could not love all of you more and please e-mail me at questions@annafarisisunqualified.com with your pressing relationship questions.
